Can stay when STVP expired but got IPA (card not collected)?

Postby michaelbui » Wed, 22 May 2013 4:36 pm

Hi nice guys,

My friend's (renewal) student pass has just got approved but the problem is:
- STVP will expire on Jun 6th
- Student Pass will re-start from Jul 1st (the previous one expired 2 weeks ago)
- My friend tried to extend STVP few days ago but got declined

My questions are:
1. Can my friend stay in Singapore until Jul 1st?
2. If no, can my friend request extension of STVP again once with the issued IPA?
3. If the answer still no, how can my friend come to ICA to collect the card before Jul 1st?

I do know that IPA does not grant the stay in Singapore but there should be some way for my friend to stay in Singapore to collect the card. I just dont know what is the proper/legit way to do that to avoid violating the laws/rules.

Thank everybody in advance!

Did your friend's request for extension get declined before they had the IPA?
If so, I would go to iCA at Lavendar with the IPA and ask for an extension again. If still declined, you, sorry he, will have to leave the country by June 6th. Return shortly before July 1st and present the IPA at immigration un order to pick up the student pass. The IPA will likely give details if there is a certain time period for which you can use it to enter and obtain the pass. (They might only want you to show up a few days before).

No, without an extenion from ICA he cannot legally stay in Singapore.

If the student pass is issued they can stay in Singapore even if you don't have the card.
With just the IPA you cannot.
